The Napier Patatfees is an annual event held in the Overberg region in the village Napier which used to be the sweet potato capital of South Africa. The festivities started on the 16th of June and ended on the 18th. Thepeople of Napier have kept the traditionalive of celebrating the entrepreneurial initiativesofthe sweet potato farmerssince the festival started in 2001. This tradition was born in the time when farmers and local farm folk were only able to obtain seasonal income from cultivating sweet potatoes. So what they used to do during the winter months when money got scarce was to travel with their self-cultivated sweet potato to West Coast towns and trade it for snoek from the local fishermen. Good food, live music, sports and all the fun activities for kidsmade 2017’s Patatfees unforgettable. The festivals most popular and traditional dish of snoek, sweet potato and coal baked bread with a bit of apricot jam was sold at food stalls to turn a profit which will then be used for the community where ever it’s needed.
